E-therapy is a term that has been used to describe the process of interacting with a therapist online in an ongoing series of conversations over time.
E-therapists are very different from "advice" or "information" services.
E-therapy is about forming a relationship with someone who is trained to help.
Also known as internet counselling, e-counselling, web therapy or remote therapy, this kind of counselling is a good solution for people who need counselling but cannot get to a therapist’s office, or those who prefer to keep in contact at a distance from wherever you are.
Online counselling gives you the opportunity to speak to a therapist, counsellor or analyst online, without having to meet them face to face.
There are all kinds of reasons why people choose online counselling, but many find the experience is more discreet and confidential.
You feel that being able to experience counselling from the comfort of your own home or office is less embarrassing and allows them to discuss personal issues more openly without feelings of guilt or shame.
